[ cheers ] >> because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. >> over overnight in yemen which is on high alert the u.s. conducted its sixth punishing drone strike in ten days. the yemeni government said six suspected al qaeda members were killed. 29 suspected al qaeda terrorists have been taken out by u.s. drones in the past ten days. new throats from al qaeda forced the evacuation of the u.s. embassy in yemen. among those outposts shut down through at least saturday by terror concerns. i wagood morning. >> good morning. >> the president says al qaeda has been hammered. he said they are on their way to defeat. from a messaging standpoint, how tricky is it to send that reassuring message at the same time you are evacuating americans? >> i think they are te directly linked. there is clear intelligence that the administration has received that these embassies are being targeted overseas. there is a clear oh effort by the administration to use the drone strikes against what they see as a
who named his child adolf hitler in new jersey. that kid is stuck with that. or osama bin laden or sean hannity. these are horrible names! >> sean hannity, that is not fair. >> all kidding aside, one quick thing, i know stephanie wants to jump in. in tennessee, turned statute of child abuse, it includes not just physical abuse, but imminent mental abuse. if you're going to name your child messiah or a worse name, a more challenging name, the child live withes it, not the parent. they think it's cute and fun. your kid has to go every day with that and get beaten up or ostracized from society. that's wrong. >> stephanie, dean makes a point. but dean, messiah is number four among fastest growing baby names in this country. so there are lots of messiahs running around. so, you know, when a judge -- forget the judge's rationale. even dean's rationale, does it add up that the name would be some insipient child abuse? >> well, a worm hole has opened in the universe yet again in that i agree with michael. >> i was -- >> the judge -- the judge is clearly overreaching here. you know, sadl
is in afghanistan, alongside osama bin laden and kaurted and went back to prison and escaped from prison. >> what is going on with these prison breaks? >> it's scary. >> this was while ago but we had someone the last couple of weeks as well. >> the last couple of weeks very dramatic prison breaks. over a thousand taliban prisoners were able to escape in the hinterlands. a couple of days ago 4,000 prisoners walked out of leppo prisoner after islamic state of iraq launched an attack on that prison. we have seen prison breaks in iraq and abu ghraib and elsewhere. some of them gotten out we never will see again but unfortunately we will see some again and we will find out they are as dedicated what they were sent there to begin with. >> general, what do we need to do? what is the strategy moving forward? because when it comes to the middle east, obviously, we are getting out of iraq and afghanistan. we are helping some of the rebels some syria. seems like we are relying on drones to go after so many targets now. what is the strategy moving forward? >> i think we have probably done about as well as we
we have made, getting osama bin laden, putting al qaeda between afghanistan and pakistan back on its heels that this radical, you know, violent extremism is still out there. >> jeremy, is this kind of a tricky line for him to walk, talking about this? of course, reminding everyone that the death of osama bin laden was under his watch but you have closings and evacuations that send a different message. >> that's right. i think jay leno asked the right question when he brought up ben ghazi. i think that looms large now over every decision that has to do with our installations overseas. the last thing that this white house wanted to have to deal with, i'm sure, is another attack on that scale. so, i mean, while al qaeda is definitely on the run, this is a reminder that, you know, while the president is trying to move on to other issues, whether it be housing policy, the environment, what have you, terrorism and the fight of it overseas is still a huge part of his portfolio. >> yeah, he answered a lot of questions. jay leno really playing the part of a reporter yesterday, including askin
drive them to currier which is what led us to osama bin laden but were very hard to find. >> reporter: the u.s. found four al qaeda suspects and killed them looking for the group's chief bomb maker. there is a worldwide travel alert for this entire month. the president said if you're planning to travel abroad, don't put it off just because of that alert. the point of that alert is to warn americans to be careful, be vigilant, and travel smart. >> all right, tracie potts live in washington, thank you. >>> on "the tonight show," the president talked to jay about everything from edwards snowden to lunch with hillary clinton. >> if there's a lawbreaker or an allegeded lawbreaker in their country, we evaluate and try to work with them. they didn't do that with us. and in some ways it's reflective of underlying challenges that we've had with russia lately. i think putin and russia have a big stake in making sure the olympics work. i think they understand that for most of the countries that participate in the olympics, we wouldn't tolerate gays and lesbians being treated differently. she had
the world and does not get terrorized. >> because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. even as we decimated the al qaeda leadership that attacked us on 9/11, al qaeda affiliates and like minded extremists still threaten our homeland. still threaten our diplomatic facilities. still threaten our businesses abroad. and we've had to take these threats seriously and do all we can to confront them. >> meanwhile, those heavy u.s. drone strikes in yemen continue. according to "the new york times," three strikes this morning have left three people dead. another wednesday killed seven. and a targeted attack on tuesday killed four people, all said to be working for al qaeda. >>> president obama also addressed another critical issue within the arms forces, its alarming rate of sexual assaults. it follows a recent report that as many as 26,000 instances of the crime went unreported last year, a 35% jump from 2010. the pentagon is reviewing records to screen for past instances of alcohol-related offenses, child abuse and unwanted sexual contact.
back when the hunt for osama bin laden was still raging, some intelligence forces believed al qaeda was even developing its own intranet that was electronically hidden behind jihadi websites and accessible to only a few people. whether they succeeded or such a system still exists like much of the communication structure remains shrouded in mystery. tom foreman, washington. >> of course the great irony using so much american innovation to try to destroy america. "outfront" next why dr. sanjay gupta change ed his mind on weed. an about-face and he h eel explain why. >>> then are you driving a compact car that failed a crash test? we have the alarming results. >>> and a double play. he made the catch but what he did next was the true score. [ male announcer ] these days, a small business can save by sharing. like carpools... polly wants to know if we can pick her up. yeah, we can make room. yeah. [ male announcer ] ...office space. yes, we're loving this communal seating. it's great. [ male announcer ] the best thing to share? a data plan. at&t mobile share for business. one bucket of
: a few years back when the hunt for osama bin laden was still raging, some intelligence forces believed al qaeda was even developing its own intranet that was electronically hidden behind jihadi websites and accessible to only a few people. whether they succeeded or such a system still exists like much of the communication structure remains shrouded in mystery. tom foreman, washington. >> of course the great irony using so much american innovation to try to destroy america. >>> our tourt fourth story outfront, dr. sanjay gupta changes his mind on weed. 20 states allow medical marijuana. and the medical community seems to be changing its mind on pot. but you know, not everybody is. a lot are adamantly against it. but there is a dramatic turn around for dr. gupta who just four years ago wrote an article for "time" magazine titled why i would vote no for pot. the ground breaking new documentary airing this sunday on cnn. and in it, he explained why he changed his mind. sanjay, the fda says marijuana is harmful, we know that. michael bloomberg is quoted saying medical marijuana is the great
the terrorism culture. i am against osama bin laden, i am against al zawahiri, i am against nidal hasan, i am against boston bomber. >> do you think islam is a religion that promotes terrorism in. >> no comment. >> he said he wishes that the boston bombers and nidal hasan had seen his film because he said his film would have convinced them not to carry out their terrorist acts. he also said he's working on a book. and now we're just learning the air force has failed a safety inspection. barbara starr joins us with more. how badly did they fail and how dangerous is this? >> reporter: it is a problem, no mistake about it, jake, for the u.s. air force. this is an air force wing in montana, about 150 minuteman interintercontinental ballistic missile. they will not tell us exactly what "tactical errors" were made that led to the fail mark on the inspection. they say the nuclear weapons were always safe. but, jake, this is the second of three wings, there's only three nuclear wings in the u.s. air force, two of them so far this year, this is number two, have failed security and safety inspections,
for taking down osama bin laden and he had a warning about the dangers out there. >> al qaeda affiliates and like-minded extremists still threaten our homeland, still threaten our diplomatic facilities, still threaten our businesses abroad. we have to take these threats seriously. >> the signs of the threat triggered a global terror alert an the basis for it. what got everyone so worked up? eli lake and josh row gan believe they know. their daily beast article is headed al qaeda conference call intercepted by u.s. officials sparked alerts. some kind of conference call that one intelligence official described it this way, like the meeting of he legion of doom. we are joined by fran townsend. she serves on the dhs and security advisory boards. i know you can only say so much because you want to protect sources and are concerned about balancing your reporting with national security. cnn has spoken to a number of sources tell, as well as terrorism experts who say that 20-plus leaders of al qaeda communicating with each other at the same time on a conference call would be a big departure and
between the man who succeeded osama bin laden as the head of al qaeda central and a former personal aide to bin laden and who is also the head of al qaeda's satellite group al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. nbc news reports tonight that a third significant al qaeda operative was also a party to communication discussing the attack. that third al qaeda leader expressed the desire to blow himself up in an attack, something he has not been allowed to do in the past. today a state department spokesperson was asked about the striking coincidence that the government made the threat public immediately after russia granted asylum to edward snowden, the nsa leaker. >> couldn't it be argued that suddenly we're hearing about this potential threat to u.s. interests and u.s. persons and property at a time when there's a lot of debate and a lot of criticism of this program as well as other nsa types of surveillance? >> i can assure you that that in no way at all, period, 100% affects how we evaluate threat information coming in, specifically in terms of this threat. >> republican peter king offered a
is never going to retreat from the world. we don't get terrorized. because of you, osama bin laden is no more. [ cheers ] >> because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. >> over overnight in yemen which is on high alert the u.s. conducted its sixth punishing drone strike in ten days. the yemeni government said six suspected al qaeda members were killed. 29 suspected al qaeda terrorists have been taken out by u.s. drones in the past ten days. new throats from al qaeda forced the evacuation of the u.s. embassy in yemen. among those outposts shut down through at least saturday by terror concerns. i wan
including one who was a driver for osama bin laden. miss poitras is still working on the third installment in that trilogy which is about u.s. surveillance of phone calls and e-mails and so on since 9/11. she posted a bit of that one last year on "the new york times" website. >> build social networks for everybody. that turns into the graph then you index all that data to that graph which means you can pull out a community, that that gives you an outline of the life of everybody in the community. and if you carry it over time from 2001 up, you have that ten years worth of their life that you can lay out in a timeline that involves anybody in the country. even senators and house of representatives. all of them. the dangers here are that we fall into something like a totalitarian state like east germany. >> working with top-level sources like that former nsa employee, uncovering government secrets, shooting and producing her films all over the world, laura poitras, the documentarian, she has been busy. she's been doing traveling for her work, for her films, she found she gets stopped a lot a
you think of the capture of osama bin laden, a physical courier driving the car that they were able to follow, so we've heard about this before. but this is an electronic trail, that's how they were able to find this. how do they do it? >> so, here's what happened, after a seven-hour internet conference between all of these leaders, the details of that conference, the minutes of it, were given to this courier and he then took it and tried to send it around to a greater distribution list inside the al qaeda community. when he did that, he made some mistakes in his operational security and they were able to catch the mistakes and track him and with the help of the yemeni authorities pick him up and capture him and when they got him they found a video of the entire seven-hour conference call along with a host of all other sorts of goodies about what al qaeda was up to. that is exactly how we found out about the worldwide terror threat that prompted the embassy closings. the courier himself is still in custody somewhere in yemen being held by yemeni authorities and they are still going
libya, and putting the special forces into pakistan to get to osama bin laden, those were cases where the president wanted to be careful and get to a specific end game. here, i think we're not looking for an open-ended military conflict. but the military strategy is probably on the president's desk. that the joint chiefs are probably looking at right now. i've been in some of the rooms where the military options have been discussed. the number one reason, to degrade his capabilities, to deter him from doing this again. we have lost some of it, it is to hold at risk something that assad values. so if we can put in our sight those things we values, the military command in control, the military headquarters, the rocket-firing capabilities, and some of his air offensive, that can be accomplished. >> can that be accomplished with military strikes? >> it can be accomplished, we just put on station a fifth guided missile destroyer, the uss stout came to the eastern area today. we'll have enough fire power, while we would love to have allies like the brits, we don't need them for fire power,
with we may have taken out osama bin laden and decimated a good part of the central command of al qaeda, we must continue to realize and we tend to forgot that these franchise cells throughout the middle east have proliferated and it's extraordinary important for us to understand why that threat is diffused for that very reason. >> let's talk about one of those cells. we keep hearing about al qaeda in the arab peninsula. they have an incredibly skilled bombmaker. what else can you tell us about them and how they might be involved? >> it's unclear at this point. there were tli drone strikes in yemen five days last week and a lot of activity going on there. they tried to carry out the 2009 bombing of an airliner flying in detroit that was an underwear bomb. there is increasing sophisticating from that in yemen. problems in yemen troops have been sort of not fighting. they have been rebelling against the government. i think yemen is a real challenge for the obama administration. they have tried to use drone strikes there. they have tried training and it has not worked well. i think they mi
international concern. u.s. sources tell nbc news it was this man who replaced osama bin laden to head al qaeda that said he wanted to do something big. a massive attack during these, the final days of the muslim month of ramadan. the target wasn't very specific, but the assassins tapped for the job were. al qaeda's most capable branch located in yemen, but they were intercepted leading washington to close 20 posts at least through the weekend and issue travel alerts through august. >> we have to be continually vigilant and have been. >> reporter: today americans were told to leave yemen where al qaeda established a base. >> they have people that are very determined and very patient in attempting to carry out these attacks against the united states. >> reporter: they have especially skilled bomb makers. it was al qaeda in yemen that put an underwear bomb on a flight to detroit and sent a printer cartridge bomb to chicago. it's no surprise the man that took over from bin laden tapped his branch for a big attack. it's been creative, aggressive, and determined to attack the united states. yemeni o
they were funded, where the training camps were. on 9/11 we did not know that. we knew osama bin laden was back, but that was the extent of our knowledge. the way we kept the country safe was get that intelligence and according to the agency itself, the way we did that was by subjecting him --because he was ejected more than anybody else -- to enhanced integration techniques. this administration does not get it. they do not. obama made a speech here not too long ago to the national defense and basicallymay said ok, now we are returning back to the tree-9/11 days. we are not at war anymore. we are going back to pre-9/11. we will go try to round up the guys when they blow up. we are no longer on a war footing, if you will, in terms of thinking about the state we're in. i think that is dead wrong. totalan absolute misreading of where we find ourselves today. as i look at that part of the world am a north africa, a good part of the middle east, not just afghanistan, where they launched 9/11 from, but also yemen and the major struggle underway in egypt, the muslim there,hood taken power th
